Subject: I love old British comedies
As with most British films of the period I did enjoy the dialogue. Much of it was so fast paced it might be missed. I loved the exchange between Paul Martin and Edmund Gilbert about securing the cash:

Gilbert: Why not put it in the safe? You can take away the key.

Martin: What if I lose the key?

Gilbert: Well I’ve got another one.

This movie's witty and easy to enjoy. I didn't mind that the print was a bit worn; it didn't detract from the experience for me and I was happy to have the opportunity to see it. However, the sound could be a bit rough, agreed. I did as picfixer advised and it worked like a charm (thank you picfixer). If you're in the mood to watch something light and want to be happily entertained, this is a good viewing choice. Thanks for the upload. - Gen :)

This is a British, Depression-era, comic fantasy about how the appearance of wealth can be manipulated to generate real money. Light, breezy, fast-paced, but without belly laughs. As compensation you can expect to be thoroughly amused. Robert Donat is charming. Wendy Barrie is luminous. Edmond Gwenn is outstanding, as always. They are supported by Lawrence Grossmith as a butler wise beyond his station. Zoltan Korda's direction moves the proceedings along in a seamless flow. The result is an hour of lighthearted entertainment with a satisfying conclusion. FOOTNOTE: The print is worn but watchable, however the soundtrack is a bit rough. If you have trouble with it, a simple solution that works in this and similar situations is turn the bass control all the way down, listen on headphones instead of speakers and suddenly the dialog becomes fully intelligible.
